Inadequately; nondeterministic search behaviour is ultimately counterproductive.

I think not, since Lindows, and other GNU/Linux distributions, are
case-sensitive, and thus their users will already often be accustomed
to such behavior.

In a filesharing client? None of Gnutella, Kazaa, Napster, nor the current DC have trained them to expect such case-sensitivity, nor do the top few web search engines implement it.
